  • Thanks very informative. Like the magnetic attachable drive as well.

  • I read that quite a few 2021 iMacs were delivered that were not level on their stands.
    The left sides were higher off of the surface than the right sides.
    Yours looks like it’s not level.

  • Interesting that the display comes right off without needing to disconnect it from the motherboard, or at least that’s what this review shows. Maybe a step missing?

    I kind of wish that Apple would have put the power button on the front. With all that empty area on the chin there’s plenty of room for it.

  • Thanks for the video. When you included the benchmarks it would have been nice to include a comparison with a non-M1 computer in order to actually show the improvement in speed instead of just saying “impressive”.
